Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: In Loki’s first session we trained drop, this skill is great for when wanting to have control of him when going for walks around other dogs. Loki knows his drops pretty well we were focusing on distance, for him to stay in the drop until I say “break”. Next session I would like to work on this but add human distractions to see how well we can push him. Training this skill at home is our priority because it is a skill that you have control of him even in different environments. Having him on lead saying ‘drop’ loud enough he can hear it when he does reward with ‘yes’ and treats. Take a step back and see how far you can get without him breaking. Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: In his second session we trained “lose lead” we trained this skill because it will help you as a owner when taking him for walks, so walking him can be calming. He wasn’t to bad at the skill took some time to get his attention but luring his nose with food for a few minutes I gained his attention, and was fantastic through out the session, towards the end he couldn’t even keep up. Next session I would like to work on this skill more, maybe try him outside. Training this at home I would train in your back yard or inside, have him on lead and treats in one hand closer to his nose, every time he looks up at you reward with ‘yes’ and treats. If your having trouble gaining his focus show him the food, if he goes to pull walk back the other way, once you have his focus you should find he won’t pull. Focus: Repetition C+
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: In Loki’s last session we trained ‘paw’ thus skill is something fun to do with him and his a great recall skill. We used a bell for him to put his paw on so he could ring it. Loki did so well with this skill he knew exactly what to do and he even would put his paw on the bell without even asking sometimes. Next session might try another recall skill with him such as spin or middles. Training this at home if something fun for him to learn and for you to teach, we used a bell but it doesn’t have to be that just something he can put his paw on. Tap the object you use and say “paw” once he does it reward with “yes” and reward, there is no wrong in this skill. Focus: Duration A+
